Explore the pretty village of Gairloch and the surrounding countryside. Gairloch itself has a fascinating museum
and plenty of shops and cafes. The GALE centre
on the seafront provides extensive tourist information and also runs local craft and produce markets every Monday and Thursday in the season, as well as hosting exhibitions – well worth a visit as there is always something on. There is a great walk from the harbour past historic Flowerdale House up to a lovely waterfall
. Driving south out of Gairloch, after a couple of miles you come to a road on the right taking you to the area known locally as the ‘overside’. This road passes through the scenic village of Badachro and on down to the wonderful beaches at Redpoint
with spectacular views over to the Isle of Skye. At Badachro you can stop for a drink at the Badachro Inn
with lovely views over the bay, or take a trip on a real working creel boat
with a local fisherman.
